Planning on hosting an epic BBQ this weekend or maybe over the upcoming Bank Holiday? If you're cooking for a large gathering, you'll need BBQ that can handle equally large quantities of food, and make your job as hands-off as possible. And, if you want to wring the most out of your BBQ use over the sometimes unreliable summer weather, you'll want one that's versatile, too.
Which is why we can't praise Char-Broil's The Big Easy Smoker enough: it's a smoker, roaster and grill in one, and it can handle an impressive amount of cooking in one go. There are hooks for smoking racks of ribs, roasting pans that will accommodate large joints and whole chickens, as well as a smaller grill for sausages and smaller cuts.
Just consider this: The Big Easy can cook 11 kilograms of poultry in one go, without oil (its clever infra-red cooking technology helps lock in juices). It's no wonder this hard-working smoker is one of our best gas BBQs.
The good news? Robert Dyas is currently offering The Big Easy at £60 off, but you'll need to hurry if you want to snap up the last few remaining ones.
